Oslo, Norway (NO)
Oslo's Gardermoen Airport is the main airport serving Norway's capital, Oslo. It lies around 50km north-east of the city centre.
There is one long terminal building, split into two piers that connect landside: the East pier serving domestic flights and the West serving international flights.
A third, North pier opened in 2017 and serves domestic as well as international flights, separated by floors.
You'll find Arrivals on Level 0 and Departures on Level 1, and restaurants and shops on both levels.
Oslo Airport offers a free, dedicated work zone with individual desks with power sockets and individual shielding to reduce noise. Alternatively you can enjoy working at the bar-style tables overlooking the airfield.

Taxi fares from the airport vary a lot, depending on the time of day and taxi company. Also, the airport is around 50 km out of the city so a taxi ride is bound to be pricey. Always agree on a fare beforehand, or go to the taxi information desk in the Arrivals area of the terminal to find out more about fixed fares. The taxi information desk can also book a taxi for you.
We found 0-Taxi (from NOK 598) to be the cheapest taxi company.
Cost: Around NOK 610 before 17:00, NOK 720 after 17:00.
Location: the taxi rank is outside the Arrivals area.
